the general principle in the nervous system. most diseases-- parkinson's-- they have multiple causes. so one doesn't think of simply a single factor like genes. that's one way of producing the disease but there are other ways of producing it also. >> yeah. that's exactly right. so one of the ways that scholars over the last several years have tried to understand this is to look at that 10% of cases where we know a miscreant gene and a sick protein have caused the disease. and so basically one can take, for example, a family. and here we have a pedigree with individuals in light and dark coloring, those who the light color having the disease, those with dark don't. and one can essentially profile d.n.a. and use profiles of d.n.a. to screen the families and essentially in that manner find the disease-causing genes. and i'll just tell you that it's... >> rose: and once you do that? >> well, the question is once one has a disease-causing gene, can one use that both to understand the disease and ultimately, of course, to find therapy. and the answer is that thus far there have been huge insights,

americans see that research as key to finding cures for spinal cord injuries, cancer, parkinson's. i want to bring in jeffrey toobin to help us explain what this means. jeffrey, in covering president bush for all of those years, one of the things he was dead set against was allowing for these federal dollars to be used for embryonic stem cell research. what he proposed was a compromise saying, look. no more new funding. just allow the funding for 21 existing lines. president obama reversed that and now we have the courts involved in this. what does this mean today? >> well, the bottom line is this is a major setback for stem cell research and for the obama administration. because what the judge said was that in 1996 while president clinton was in office congress passed a law that said there could not be any use of federal money for research where embryos are destroyed. both president bush and president obama worked within the framework because the president unilaterally can overturn a law. by expanding the opportunities for federal funding of research as president obama did shortly after
